This is a gorgeous photo Jacque, almost real! So pleased you have lots of them in your garden - I've not seen many peacocks but lots of the small brown ones.

Fantastic shot Jacque, looks as though I could reach out and touch it. Wish I had these colorful butterflies in my garden ~

Nice picture Jacque. I see you have a Buddleia to attract the butterflies as well. Mine has been feeding lots of Painted Ladies this year so far.. I think the persistant rain is keeping the other away.

They are so beautiful arn't they Jac! Butterflys seem to be doing better this year - I've had quite a few - not as many as you, but more than in recent years. Also nice to see the return of Painted Ladies, as you say not one last year.... I also seem to have a lot of catapillars this year - they're nor normally a problem and I try to be tolerant of them if not much damage being done, but this year they seem to be everywhere - even on my tomatos!

Hi Sarah i do love Butterflies & its great theres more about :) Not seen many Caterpilllairs on My Flowers ? Maybe the Black Birds/Hedgehogs have eatten them ? :/

Mostly I leave them be, but if they are really threatening to overpower a plant, then I carefully pick them off and put them somewhere theyll do less harm - like on the self-sown nastutians I've got dotted around the place, or on the nettles I've left for them. I've found a few catapillars on some brambles too - weird colourful ones with mad hair-dos!! lol Wonder what they'll turn into?!

Sounds like the Coloured Hairy 1s will be Punk Rockers Sarah lol :)
